GTK+ 1.2 has been retired by upstream for 8 years and was deprecated in many
linux disritbutions, e.g. debian arch.
Few applications in our repos now depends on gtk+ 1.2 and there is no
security support for it.
I think it is time to retire it entirely from our repos, though it may break
dependencies for some applications.
For them, we can simply:
1. Simply orphan those application from repos which have dead upstream for a
long time. Normally, those allipcations have better alternatives using GTK+
2.x, we don't need worry about this.
2.Update applications to GTK 2.x port which was already done by upstream,
and ping the maintainer to see if he is nonresponsive now.
